    first of all city does not do 0-100 in 16 sec, it does in less than tht, secondly on petrol the city's consumption is far less then tht of a baleno on petrol, ok i admit the spare of honda will always b expensive then toyota or suzuki, the interior city is also far more better than balenos...the only advantage the baleno has is the CNG option....while givig 85hp is not a big feat as the DOHC sunny 1.3 gives 95....so my option wud b city

    i think we should not support SUZUKI with buying 8 year old designs we all know the new baleno is just a facelift of the 96 model the only thing (except the exterior and interior facelift) that has changed is front suspension and nothing else,
    baleno has hard seats the only thing good about it is its power but not that good because the engine technology is years behind CITY's (international model has a hightech economical 93 hp 1328cc engine while the baleno here has a 1298cc old engine)
    CITY has incredible mobility and a very smooth drive and the VARIO has CVT in it so 23.5 KM/L now thats great city has great sound proofing and when you see a baleno and a city parked together the first impression would be that City is about 2-3 lacs more expensive than baleno

    Well first of all, suzuki and honda are different classes. Secondly, the driving style of a suzuki cannot match that of a honda.If you want performance, luxury and style , then you wanna go for a honda.But I'll even then buy a Baleno, why? Because o fthe parts, and that when I'll try to sell the car after some years, suzuki baleno will be sold effortlessly and a honda will be a pain in the ***. And about one reply that baleno and honda city are both 1300cc so the performance depends on the driver, well if you give a khyber to one person and a charade GTti to another, as both of them are 1000cc, what do you expect???

    sry bro i dont agree with u the only thing good about baleno is its performance city is much slower than baleno and baleno is certain to be replaced by a new model in this or the next year and you know when a car gets a new model the resale value of the older model falls by a large margin
